My vote goes with those who put EtBr in the loading dye.  Works like a 
charm, as long as itt's there when you heat-denature the sample.  

I also use 0.2 M (rather than 2M) formaldehyde in both gel and buffer.

A lab mate of mine uses plain old TAE gels to visualize RNA, they seem to 
work fine (she uses EtBr in the sample).
